GM Planning to Put Self-Driving Cars to Commercial Use

General Motors is outlining its vision for an autonomous future. 

The company announced it will outline its view on the future of self-driving technology in a webcast scheduled for investors on November 30. According to Reuters, it’s believed GM plans to expand its autonomous vehicle research to encompass commercial uses. 

Last month, GM debuted SURUS, a flexible, autonomous fuel cell electric platform likely destined for military and first response use and also made a splash when the company purchased Strobe, a startup producing LIDAR laser sensors.

GM’s Cruise automation has already been running self-driving Bolts around San Francisco for the better part of the last year, it’s possible the company could be eying an autonomous ride-sharing service, along the lines of Waymo’s recently announced robo-taxi.
